As the New Year rolls around, everybody has something to say about the next big thing in music. We’ve rounded up a selection of tips for 2014 and aggregated the results to compile the list of all lists. As well as taking note of our own picks for this year, we’ve also referred to Drowned In Sound, BBC Sound of 2014, Dazed, 4 Music, The Guardian, Clash Music, Drunken Werewolf, The 405, Rinse FM, Digital Spy, The Fly, Resident Advisor, Amazing Radio, Sleep In Music, The Selector, emusic and Time Out.

The methodology is easy. Every mention an artist gets, they are awarded 10 points. You'll see some artists and bands won the same amount of points so Chlöe Howl, Fat White Family and Sam Smith are essentially in joint 2nd place. All hail Banks.
